~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NAS devices.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

The SySS GmbH found a reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability in 
the /cgi-bin/application/appRequest.cgi component of the QTS administrative 
interface.

This type of vulnerability allows an attacker to create an URL which, when
opened in the victims browser, leads to the display of active element like
inserted JavaScript code in the victims browser, leading to the exeuction
of this code. The code can then be used to e.g. execute commands in the 
scope of the user, infect the users browser and so on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

1. Open the following URL in a browser without sufficient rXSS protection
(e.g. Firefox):
http://[QNAPIP]:8080/cgi-bin/application/appRequest.cgi?action=getQPKGDownloads&qname=Testlink%3Cimg%20src=foo%20onError=alert%281%29%3E


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solution:

The manufacturer has not released any security update or patch so far.
Administrators of QNAP QTS 4.2 installations should restrict access to a
QNAP device to trusted users. Users should be informed about the 
vulnerability and tutored about security awareness.
